Well that's kinda cool. I actually like the lyrics. Some of them, anyway. (It does feel like Hunter threw in everything including the kitchen sink. The hangman and Eric Dolphy in the same tune?!? Could use some pruning for sure, but some of those lines are really effective IMO.)

In the reviews, people get into a back-and-forth about who Bob is giving the chord changes to on 4. To me, it sounds like Mickey rather than Jerry. What do you think?

Another cool thing: This would be one of the earliest recordings of the modulus, right? Phil brought it out, I think, for the New Year's shows in '82.

I agree - sounds like Weir is helping Mickey write out a "chart" for the tune, and it has a lot of chord changes.
